Challenge # 2 - Take 2 Colours

 Hi everyone
Wow! Wow! Wow!!!
We were blown away and so very thrilled by your entries into the first of our challenges. Amazing number of entries and fantastic to see so much talent out there! It was sooooo difficult to choose a winner and top 5, eventually we did decide though and was thrilled to see that the winner had used Stampman products! 

Sorry for the delay announcing the winners, lappy trouble!  Now I have a new screen and mother board I can get on with it, but boy it's been hard, I guess giving 152 awards isn't the idea though!   The DT have put forward suggestions from their visits, if you haven't won anything this time, please keep entering, there really wasn't one entry that didn't deserve an award

Top prize - £10 of Stamp Man Gift Vouchers:  109 Lisa!  (received most recommendations)

Rest of Top 5
77 MeggyMay
11 Jozart
122 Jocelyn
86 Georgina

Thank you for taking part in our first challenge and congratulations to the Top 5!!  You'll find your blinkies on the sidebar.  If you used an Aspects of Design stamp please take a gold star even if you didn't reach the Top 5.

I'll now hand you back over to Michelle for details of the next challenge...

On to this weeks challenge - it's easy! Just take two colours!
